Sponsored ADR program in the United States
ADRs have been issued to allow American investors to buy Vallourec shares even though the group is not listed on the American stock market. An ADR (American Depositary Receipt) is an American negotiable security that represents shares of a company listed outside of the United States. It allows American investors to hold shares indirectly and to trade them on the securities markets.
Vallourec has engaged the bank JPMorgan to issue ADRs that represent Vallourec shares with dividends and voting rights included. As the depositary bank, JPMorgan is required to distribute the dividends in U.S. dollars and facilitate voting participation for ADR holders.
Vallourec ADRs have been trading on the American over-the-counter (OTC) market since 4 October 2010.
